My house is getting older. It's still in good shape, but there are a few places that could use some help. I was at home depot not too long back and saw these really cool $40 kits to remake bathroom light - just like the ones I have. I cant find them again. In a state of 'boredom' I decided I was going to experiment. With nothing more than a can of black spray paint this is what I did.
Already had this on hand - never know when you will need black spray paint
The lights before. The bathroom isn't huge so having all 4 lights shining is overwhelming - I have all 4 bulbs installed - just 1 shining at a time. It's hard to see, but there is some rust starting to form on the silver plate behind the bulbs. Doesn't look bad from a distance - but I am picky....
After taking the bulbs out I found out that the round piece that holds the bulbs pulls right off! How simple!
This is what I was left with when the bulbs, light bulb holder in place thingy and silver plate were removed.
A little spray paint - OUTSIDE - and after an hour it was ready to be installed.
Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes to do this for 3 bathrooms. I would like to try a different color next time. Not bad for a quick afternoon 'pick me up'
